A task is a typically a logical subprocess. For example, consider a master data automation, where the vendor data creation comes in an email. The bot is expected to read the email, create an entry in SAP, upload the attachments and send a response email back to the requestor. This overall process can be divided into the following subprocesses and each subprocess becomes a task in Jiffy:
Design Canvas is used to design a RPA task. JiffyRPA provides several in-built components for designing a task. The in-built components are available in the design canvas in the right panel known as nodes. These nodes are dragged and dropped on to the canvas. The nodes have to be connected to the Start Task node and the End task node (which are by default available on the canvas).
As per the business requirements, each component has to be dragged on to the design canvas. The components have to be connected to each other in the same order as the task is expected to be executed. Properties of each component has to be mentioned in the properties section in the right panel. Properties of the component varies based on the component selected.
In-built components available in the right side panel are:
Data flows from one node to other is achieved through Mappings.
Refer: Mappings for further details.
Below video demonstrates the process of creating a task with multiple nodes and mappings.
